We are believers in giving back to our accounting community. We do this in part by hiring seasonal tax support. College interns help support our Tax Accountants and CPAs. They may contact you directly or send emails on our behalf requesting engagement letters or other tax documents. Please be patient with them (and us) as they acquire new skills while simultaneously helping keep the tax preparation process moving forward.
